The Save Our Fairgrounds coalition has won an appeal overturning a Nashville judge's dismissal of the group's lawsuit to stop construction of the city's Major League Soccer stadium, the Tennessean reports. The Tennessee Court of Appeals overturned Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle rejection of the coalition's argument regarding the construction of the stadium, which said it failed to identify "genuine issues."  The coalition sued the city in September, arguing the construction at the fairgrounds and the elimination of 3,500 parking spaces would make it impossible for the Nashville Flea Market to operate on the fairgrounds.
